Rosa Sophia is an automotive mechanic, but everyone thinks she is a librarian. She lives in South Florida in a cottage by the sea, and hopes to earn an MFA in Creative Writing one day. As a trigeminal neuralgia patient, she also writes about her condition in the hope that it will spread awareness of this rare disorder. Her novels "Meet Me in the Garden" and "Orion Cross My Sky" both feature main characters that suffer with trigeminal neuralgia. Rosa hopes readers will gain a greater understanding of this disability through her stories.


I'm currently on a search to find an affordable copy of "Pioneer Life in Southeast Florida" by Charles W. Pierce. If anyone knows where I can get a copy, please let me know. Amazon has them, but the cheapest is 45.00. It is an old book... Please let me know if you have any thoughts! Thanks.

The House Guest (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 30, 2016 05:53AM
Description: An envelope addressed to Katherine Maslin stood out amongst the pile of bills. It is a notice from an attorney… the rights to her grandparents’ farmhouse and adjacent property. She believes that a change will rid her of the strange dreams she’s been having, wherein an oddly familiar woman visits her, begging for her help. But when Kat realizes that the woman in her dream is her dead grandmother, she begins to have doubts about moving to the farm. Rumors and nightmarish tales fill her mind, stories of the five men who lost their lives in the late 1950s to a heartless murderer. A man had been convicted, but was he the one the police had been looking for, or had he been framed? Kat is thrown backwards through time on a journey to discover a terrible truth. The ghost of her grandmother is always one step ahead of her, leading the way. But will she find the real killer before he finds her?

The Hero's Journey by Joseph Campbell
“You enter the forest
at the darkest point,
where there is no path.

Where there is a way or path,
it is someone else's path.

You are not on your own path.

If you follow someone else's way,
you are not going to realize
your potential.”
Joseph Campbell

“I was compared to Charles Bukowski yesterday. It was the best and worst compliment I've ever gotten.”
Rosa Sophia

“Books may well be the only true magic.”
Alice Hoffman

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”
Anaïs Nin

“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”
Mark Twain

“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”
